#5 Establish a Healthy Holiday Snacking Perimeter

Clean Fun Living - healthy holiday snacking perimeter

Food is everywhere during the holidays, especially sugar and salt laden ones.

@home:  Keep the holiday treats out of the homestead to the extent you can do so with kids, visiting relatives and significant others sharing the refrigerator. At the very least you can ask that they could be kept to a minimum.

@work: Try to keep communal office goodies out of view, either in an area that isn’t as highly trafficked as the kitchen, the break room, or in dark containers or covered dishes.

Better yet, establish a perimeter of your favorite fruits, nuts, and seeds.

Before you allow yourself a splurge, do something beneficial to your body, like doing a few shots of water, walking around the office floor once or twice, or climbing a few flights of stairs.

Take Action
Delay that cookie or salted caramel indulgence until just before bedtime.
At that point, you’re less likely to crave another treat immediately than you would during your afternoon coffee break,
especially if the entire box or tin is no longer around.
